The weather in Fiji is mild and stable throughout the year and there are two distinct seasons: dry and rainy. The best time to visit is from March to November, when the weather is cool and dry. This is also the peak tourist season and popular areas tend to be rather crowded during this time.
Many visitors prefer to visit Fiji during the wet season, which occurs from December to April, as accommodation prices are lower and the beaches are much less crowded. Cyclones tend to occur in January and February, although they are rarely severe.
Getting from the airport is easy as there are numerous transport options available. The public bus network around Fiji is extensive and this is by far the cheapest way to get around. The Sunbeam Transport company runs non-air-conditioned express buses around Viti Levu, while express buses cover major routes on the islands.
Visitors who opt to travel by taxi should agree on the fare in advance as metered taxis are rare in Fiji. There are also regular ferries and planes to take visitors between the main islands, while those who want to visit smaller islands should charter a private boat.
